This study used a multiple baseline across behaviors design to analyze the effects of didactic training plus simulated rehearsal and feedback on a preservice teacher’s implementation of behavior management skills (i.e., opportunities to respond, behavior specific praise, token reward system) with students with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Results indicate a functional relation between the intervention package and increased teacher performance across all three behavior management skills. Participants reported positive perceptions and experiences of the use of simulated classroom environments like TeachLivETM as a training component. Implications for future research and practice are provided.
